, including a senior obama administration officials have stated, the very helicopter gunships that the regime is currently using to bomb and shatter civilians. as the united states and the international community stand idle, the consequences are clear -- syria will become a failed state in the heart of the middle east threatening both our ally, israel, and our nato ally, turkey. with or without assad, the country will continue to devolve into a full-scale civil war that is increasingly sectarian, repressive and unstable. meantime, more and more ungoverned space will come under the control of al qaeda and its allies. violence and radicalism will spill even more into lebanon and iraq, fueling sectarian conflicts that are still burning in both countries. syria will turn into a battlefield between sunni and shia extremists. even backed by foreign powers which will ignite sectarian tensions from north america to the gulf and risk a wider regional conflict. this is the course we are on in syria and in the absence of international action, the situation will only get worse. although secretary kerry a
: it would be great if the obama administration simply released the information and told us what was actually happening. that would be great. but so far they have not been very forthcoming. and with a compliant mainstream media, people aren't asking a lot of questions. while the smoking gun is actually reporting the story about how blumenthal's e-mail account had been hacked and how the four e-mails that had been sent to hillary have now been distributed to members of congress and members of the media, they haven't revealed what's in the memo. >>brian: there is no information that's inside. you could say it would be great for the obama administration to come forward. but nobody thinks that personal interaction should be public. when you e-mail your personal friend and attorney, you don't want that to be published. >>steve: remember what happened with wikileaks and julian as sang and the guys at wikileaks, as soon as they got their hands on the stuff at the bush white house, let's put it out there for everybody to see. it's interesting to see what the people in the press, the restraint they're
an aggressive outreach program that has grown under the obama administration, particularly through the president's stimulus package. these expanded initiatives include the collaboration between the usda and the mexican government officials to promote participation in targeted communities which teaches recruiters how to convince working class families into dependence. the obama administration has conducted over 30 meetings with the mexican government personnel since he took office. since this program began in 2004, the united states taxpayer has funded this participation with the mexican government to promote the snap program by holding 29 health fairs and traveling to 19 cities. the usda in coordination with the mexican government has conducted an aggressive campaign issuing guidance to state and local agencies with a record 91 meetings focusing on growing the outreach program to expand enrollment in snap. and none of these meetings were needed to point them in the direction of job training programs or employment searches that would offer much greater opportunity than whatever the federal govern

carolina senator lindsey graham, who told fox news the obama administration is being unusually tight-lipped compared to other international events. >> and remember, this administration leaked every detail of the bin laden raid and told about the pakistani doctor who helped who is now in jail and told us about seal team six. they're refusing to give us the identity of the survivors and allowing them to come to congress to be interviewed. >> harris: you may remember, four americans died in an asack, ambassador stevens, sean smith, gloenn doherty and tyrone woods. >> reporter: harris, details about the benghazi terror attacks begin to emerge as we learn the three diplomatic security agents and among the injured may be asked not to talk. republican senator lindsey graham tells fox news the injured may have been told to keep quiet. >> i'm going to hold this up in the senate until we get the survivors on record. i've talked to a couple and their story is chilling. they're scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. >> reporter: the ranking member of the house inte
house for us. how much of a problem is north korea right now for the obama administration? >> reporter: well, i think it is a problem, craig. the obama administration had been hoping when kim jong-un took over that he would help to lead north korea out of isolationism. really the opposite has happened. he's become more bellicose than his father and these intercepters are going to be placed because of recent provocations from north korea and there is a sense that they've made advances in nuclear capabilities. last week, north korea threatened a preemptive nuclear strike against the united states and also they're ending their treaty with south korea. to there is a lot of concern. we should say this move to increase the number of intercepters marks a shift in the obama administration's policy, because back in 2010, they had said they weren't going to add new intercepters. this comes as president obama is just starting his second term. he's mapped out an ambitious agenda. but experts say this is going to take up a large portion of the next several years, concerns about north korea and iran

sequestration gave the obama administration a political reason to release deportable aliens. surely otherle budgetary considerations could have come first such as cutting conferences or detailees or travel. releasing illegal immigrants ves them little incentive to report themselves. many will become fugitives. further more, the director has indicated that i.c.e. has had to reapprehend four out of the 10 of the illegal immigrant for more severe crimes. to make matters worse, many of these individuals released lack the money, family, support, and the ability to get a job. not just because they are present in violation of the law but because they have a criminal record. this is a ultimately, the nonsensical action demonstrates the inability and a lack of desire on behalf of the administration to enforce the law, even against illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes. to make matters worse, they undermine the goodwill necessary to develop a common sense, step- by-step approach to improving our immigration laws. pleasureime, it is my to recognize the ranking member of the committee, the gen

prosperity of their own families and of our own nation. under the obama administration, u.s. public debt is a percent -- as a percentage of g.d.p. is over 70% and growing. we've seen european nations, there appears to be a tipping point on the debt to g.d.p. ratio. and our current rate, we're nearing dangerous territory. the reverse currency status of the dollar and our rank among world economies will only carry us for so long. so what affect does this level of debt have on the economy and its citizens when things go south? all you have to do is look around like -- at countries like cyprus, spain, greece. in the case of greece you'll see a depressed environment where the unemployment rate is over 26%, severe austerity cuts and overhauls of gutted worker benefits, safety net programs, harming seniors and the country's poorest populous, taxes on families an businesses have increased at a sharp rate and violent social unrest has become common place. most recently we've seen a proposal to bail out cyprus banks that could raid the savings account of its own population. these are the realities

puts our nation on a sustainable course. it puts an end to the obama administration tosses roadblock to energy development and pave the way for projects like my colleague just mentioned, the keystone pipeline, which will generate more than 130,000 jobs, boost our economy, and bring down energy costs. the budget also promotes economic growth, job creation, supports research and development in the energy sector, and moves america to a more energy independent state. it expands oil and gas development, which could generate a half a million new jobs and $14.40 trillion in increased economic and art -- activity. by preventing or delaying domestic energy exploration, the obama administration has driven jobs overseas. in this budget, the house republicans in the subsidies, -- support for this budget translates into a response will plan to grow our economy and create jobs. i yield back my time. >> i would like to yield two minutes to the gentleman from indiana. >> thank you. what we are doing here today, people in america are hurting. to many parents have come hold -- come home and told their
